WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Biden Administration’s investment of $2.8 billion in American-made battery technologies for electric vehicles underscores both the president’s commitment to job-creating climate solutions and how policies that are good for the environment are also good for hardworking families.
“Clean energy innovation and 21st century solutions, like electric vehicles, are powering both the U.S. response to the climate crisis and our economic revival,” said Shannon Heyck-Williams, senior director of climate and energy policy at the National Wildlife Federation. “The president’s $2.8 billion investment in battery manufacturing underscores how the investments of the bipartisan infrastructure law are helping address the climate crisis, putting Americans back to work in good-paying jobs, and revitalizing the U.S. manufacturing sector. We need to build off these investments and ensure that we are recycling the critical minerals we’ve already mined and only extracting new minerals in ways that do not harm wildlife, communities, or the environment.”
